Generally, North Carolina incorporation bylaws are written to manage the corporation’s business and to conduct the corporation’s affairs so long as the bylaws do not conflict with the articles of incorporation. A corporation maintains its bylaws at its principal executive office and is not required to file them with the state. United Agent Services will provide customized bylaws for your corporation based on the operation requirements that you specify.

The incorporators or board of directors must adopt initial bylaws for North Carolina incorporation.

Director Information

The bylaws may prescribe qualifications for directors that are not inconsistent with the articles of incorporation.

Officer Information

Officers may be listed in the bylaws or elected by the board, and may appoint other officers, in compliance with the bylaws. Unless a different officer is designated by the bylaws or the board, the secretary or assistant secretary is responsible for preparing minutes of the directors’ and shareholders’ meetings and for maintaining and authenticating corporate records. Any officer may hold more than one office in the corporation, but no individual may act in more than one capacity where action of two or more officers is required.
